Introduction to Business Valuation and Use of Guidelines
This introductory course concentrates on the valuation of closely held businesses. Such valuations are often needed for estate planning and gift tax purposes. The course explains key IRS rulings and court cases that often dictate the methods used in a given case. Both the IRS and the courts emphasize using historical facts instead of a valuation based on future projections. Because of the lack of a market value for a closely held company, it is useful and desirable to calculate the valuation based on the market value of a comparable publicly held company.
This course is most beneficial to professionals new to business valuation who may be at the staff or entry level in organization but also for a seasoned professional with limited exposure to this subject.
Upon successful completion of this course, the user should be able to:
describe closely held business valuation, and
identify comparable companies.
